AN UNKNOWN SPECIES BRED WITH OUR ANCESTORS


Spread_and_evolution_of_Denisovans

MORE THAN 40,000 YEARS AGO a sub-species humanoid lived in Siberia. DNA analysis shows that they are a distinct species from the Neanderthal and modern human. Denisova Cave in SIberia housed extinct breeds of humanoids, including both of the above.

In late 2013 a new study was revealed to the Royal Society in London, In the examination of the DNA of a finger fragment found in the cave, they found that one section of the genome seemed to come from a previously unknown species. The same genetic results were confirmed in two teeth found on the site.

As yet, who preceded these extinct species is a great mystery.

How long have intelligent humanoids lived on Earth? It is a question that is less solved than we thought. Perhaps even a million years? More?
